Lieutenant Harlow Launceston
Name Harlow Jenae Launceston MD
Position General Physician
|Height||142 cm (4'8")|
|Weight||42 kg (92 lbs)|
|Physical Description||Harlow’s physical appearance lends an air of frailty to her. Short, slight and almost childlike in appearance, she is a far cry from the perceptions of your run of the mill Starfleet Officer. Standing at a mere 4’8”, Harlow is significantly shorter than the majority of her peers. Her slight height is correlated by her slight weight. The most startling part of her appearance is usually her purple hair, something that started in her late teenage years when she first joined the Academy, her hair colour has since become equally as much a part of her existence as any other physical part of her body.|
|Marital Status||In a Relationship|
|General Overview||Harlow is generally a softly spoken individual with an extraordinary amount of compassion for others, especially those in need. She considers herself a very simple individual with simple needs and very few creature comforts, but the one thing she cannot do without is chocolate. She has a genuine love of being around other people, though she often feels awkward and socially inadequate, largely because of her lack of socialising through her younger years. She has a tendency to be a bit of a silent observer, smiling politely and listening as events happen around her. Having spent her life growing up never truly knowing who she was, even to the point of disliking her own name because it is a constant reminder of how different she is to everyone else, Harlow longs for nothing more than security, stability and certainty.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
Lacking in confidence and being socially awkward means that Harlow rarely speaks up, especially not in self promotion.
|Hobbies & Interests||Reading, music, dancing, chocolate|
|Personal History||There is very little known about Harlow's most formative years. Found aboard an unidentified Klingon vessel adrift in the Romulan Neutral Zone, Harlow was the only survivor of some still largely unknown disaster that annihilated the entire Klingon crew, yet Harlow somehow remained completely unharmed.
Medical examinations indicated that she was estimated to be approximately 4 years old and of Betazoid/Human descent.
Because no one knew anything of her history it was initially determined that Harlow would be returned to Starfleet Medical where she would undergo further evaluation.
Named Harlow after the ship that 'found' her, she was then placed in the care of Commander Jack Alfava, over the space of the next three years attempts were made to integrate Harlow into her new world, however she remained unwilling to cooperate, unwilling to speak and spent most of her time alone in silence.
It was only after she was transferred into the care of Commander Jacinta Launceston that she finally started to come out of the shell she had retreated into.
After several years under the loving care of Commander Launceston, Harlow had grown into a precocious child with a genuine thirst for knowledge and a keen interest in all things medical (the later of which was likely attributed to the great many hours of her childhood spent in Starfleet Medical).
She remained homeschooled by private tutors until she entered Starfleet Academy to undertake her own studies in medicine before graduating in the top 1% of her class.
